That this House condemns the Spanish Government's plans to impose direct rule over language provision in Catalonian schools; recognises that Catalonia is an autonomous self-governing community and reserves the right to ensure Catalan is the working language used in its schools; rejects the Spanish Government's plans which would divide Catalonian students on a language basis; and urges the Government to make representations to the Spanish Government to respect the will of the people of Catalonia and find a peaceful and democratic solution to the ongoing instability.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
